Dean's Crispy Bloggette (avec Fromage)

Sounds great. The videos are one of the best sources of info for newcomers and also very valuable when venturing into a new area of interface design.

And yet another mix of that previous bit:

I'm slowly but surely learning this process. There are bazzillions of issues to consider and it's definitely more art than science. It's still far from perfect, still a little muddy and the kick/bass are still less than crisp, but it's way closer than anything I've gotten so far.

Ignore that one above... I screwed that one up. Listen to this one:

Well today was kind of a this and that day, mainly just going through and double checking myself. Since there aren't any complaints so far with the new release I'm assuming it's not going to be need to be too much longer before it is official, through I'd like to get more folks to try it out first if they feel comfortable with that. Judging by the results so far it should be worth their time.

My system so far has been running perfectly, very responsive still, the Z-Wave stuff is working really well. When my light blinker goes off each night the on and off is very crisp (time-wise.) There are no delays. I've not had any messages in the logs at all other than the usual stuff of logins and when I start/stop CQC on my work machine or start up the server.

So I think that this is going to be one of the better releases, despite having very little in it. It's in the little things I guess. I'm going to spend tomorrow doing doc updates in preperation for the release, and probably will make some more videos and more some more tests over to my test framework.

On, and another big step forward on the mixing/mastering front tonight:

I'm starting to actually get it I think. Haven't tried it on real speakers yet, just on monitors of the sort that most folks typically use (better than that probably), but it sounds pretty good there and in the headphones.

Dean,

Your mixing skills are improving Smile And I like your guitar work.

I've been using Cakewalk stuff since before it had audio capabilities. Just MIDI. But I've recorded quite alot on Sonar and love it. I'm still sitting on version 3. Everytime I get close to upgrading, another project comes along to stop me. You know, if it ain't broke...

I've done as many as 24 tracks live without a single hiccup. Rock solid program.

Here's something from the first album I worked on that went international. Of course, don't ask how many it sold Smile But it was HUGE in Japan :-D

I like it. It wouldn't sound out of place at all on the local alt-rock station.

They are tremendous musicians. They call it "math-pop." I assume because of the precision. I didn't do their second album because I was moving and the studio was ripped apart. Oh well. It was for the Japanese market only.

Anyway, keep up the creative stuff too. It leads to good balance in life. Too much coding can make you crazy :-)

Oh, and actually, here's one last one:

We must have had a power drop yesterday since my RAID array on the controller was offline again when I went in to put the latest build on it. I had to sit around for an hour and wait for it to rebuild until 2am, so I worked on the mix some more. This is the last mix on this thing. I'm now confident that I reasonably well know what I'm doing and I'll move on and do a full piece.

Oh, and on another personal note, while I wait for something to build here... I hit the good scales in the apartment workout room on the way to the mailbox today, and the tally was 198. This is down from 220 at the start of the year, and the first time I've been able to put the big weight in the 150 notch in probably like four years. So all the suffering has been paying off. I have two pairs of pants I can get into now, and I'm back to an A cup.
